Bobbi Caprice was officially named Director of Athletics at Penn State Brandywine on Nov. 4, 2018.
During Caprice's five years directing the athletic department, Brandywine has captured 10 conference championships and the campus' first three national titles, winning the USCAA Men's Soccer Championships in 2018 and 2021 and the USCAA Softball World Series in 2023. Brandywine also won Chancellors' Cup trophies as the top athletic department in the PSUAC in 2018-19, 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23, while placing second during a pandemic-shortened 2019-20 academic year.
As athletic director, Caprice instituted the Brandywine Athletics Hall of Fame, which inducted its first class in 2020. Brandywine has merged its first-year seminar with the campus, while adding a second-year seminar and mentoring program for student-athletes, both of which debuted in 2021-22, under Caprice's direction.
Since graduating from Brandywine in 2013, Caprice has been a member of the athletic staff. Caprice began her tenure as the athletic recruiting coordinator, while also overseeing the fitness center, student workers and the intramural program. Since becoming a full-time member of the staff, Caprice has helped the department add the Brandywine Games (athletics’ annual kickoff picnic), a student-athlete recruit dinner, academic monitoring for all student-athletes and first-year/second-year seminar.

She has also aided the Brandywine coaching staff in recruiting over 200 student-athletes during her five years as recruiting coordinator. Each year, the Brandywine athletic department features over 160 student-athletes competing in 12 varsity sports.
From Nov. 2015-Oct. 2018, she served as Brandywine’s assistant athletic director and recruiting coordinator.

As a student-athlete, Caprice was a member of the women’s basketball, volleyball and cross country teams. A 1,000-point scorer for the women’s basketball team, Caprice was the recipient of the John S. Egli Award during her senior year as the top student-athlete in the Penn State University Athletic Conference.

Caprice was a member of the 2010-11 conference champion women’s basketball team. She served as an assistant coach during Brandywine’s back-to-back women’s basketball championships in 2016-17 and 2017-18, while also assisting the 2015 softball team to its first PSUAC title.

Since Caprice joined the athletics staff in 2013, Brandywine’s teams have won 26 PSUAC championships, a conference high during that time. Brandywine athletics has also earned its seven Chancellors’ Cups in its history as the top department in the PSUAC (2013-14, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2020-21, 2021-22, 2022-23) during her tenure.
Caprice received her degree in human development and family studies from Penn State Brandywine in 2013 and earned a Master's degree in education from West Chester University in 2015.
